Recreation and Leisure Strategic Plan

Current Status - In Progress. Open for public exhibition and submissions until COB 4 January 2019. Expected adoption date - March 2019 Council meeting.

Council’s Recreation and Leisure Strategic Plan is an extensive 10 year plan that will be used to guide community and Council in the planning, development, provision and promotion of sport, recreation and leisure facilities, programs and services. The plan directly aligns with the current Southern Grampians Health and Wellbeing Plan and will inform future plans.

HILAC Pool Entry

Current Status - Material and work ordered, expected install January 2019

We recognise that the current entry to the HILAC pool via the changerooms or office area is not accessible, inclusive or family friendly.

Throughout January, work will be completed to resurface the HILAC café floor with a non-slip surface, and automatic doors will be installed to allow direct access from reception to the pools. The doors will be linked with our system so you will be able to scan directly though as a member/pass holder/swim school member, and casual visitors will access once they have visited reception.

Penshurst Botanic Gardens Playground Renewal

Current Status - Ordered, expected install April 2019

During the Botanic Gardens Master Plan community engagement session, the community expressed their desire for a volcano theme for the upgraded play space. View the design here

Pedrina Park Irrigation

Current Status - Tender being developed, expected install April/May 2019.

There are funds budgeted for the 19/20 financial year to upgrade the irrigation system at Pedrina Park to automatic. This will greatly reduce the number of hours the community and staff are required to spend manually moving sprinklers, and enable watering to be done during the night for better environmental outcomes.
